Dental implants are a great way to replace missing teeth and also provide a fixed solution to having removable partial or complete dentures.  Implants provide excellent support and stability for these dental appliances.

Dental implants are artificial roots and teeth (usually titanium) that are surgically placed into the upper or lower jaw bone by a surgical dentist.  The teeth attached to implants are very natural looking, feel great to chew on and often enhance or restore a patient’s smile!

Dental implants are strong and durable and will last many years.  On occasion, the crowns or bridgework on implants may come loose with prolonged function, and may have to be re-tightened or replaced due to normal wear.

Reasons for choosing dental implants:

  • Replace one or more missing teeth without affecting adjacent teeth.
  • Resolve joint pain or bite problems caused by teeth shifting into missing tooth space.
  • Restore a patient’s confident smile.
  • Restore chewing, speech, and digestion.
  • Restore or enhance facial tissues.
  • Support a bridge or denture, making it more secure and comfortable.
What does getting dental implants involve?

The process of getting implants requires about 7-11 visits over several weeks.

X-rays and impressions (molds) are taken of the jaw and teeth to determine bone, gum tissue, and spacing available for an implant.  While the area is numb, the implant will be surgically placed into the bone and allowed to heal and integrate itself for three to six months.   Depending on the type of implant, a second minor surgery may be required in order to expose the implant in the mouth and place an abutment, that ultimately holds the crown or bridge or denture on it.  With other implants designs, the implant and abutment are already attached and placed at the same time.

After several weeks of healing the artificial teeth are made and fitted to the abutment portion of the anchor.  Because several fittings may be required, this step may take one to two visits to complete.  After a healing period, the artificial teeth are securely attached to the implant, providing excellent stability and comfort to the patient.

You will receive care instructions when your treatment is completed.  Good oral hygiene and eating habits, alongside regular dental visits, will aid in the life of your new implant.
